About Today Readings

St Casimir

Deuteronomy 26:16-19. Happy are those who follow the law of the Lord! – Psalm 118(119):1-2, 4-5, 7-8. Matthew 5:43-48.

Love your enemies
My Lord, I thank you for inviting me,
a sinner, to this lovely world
where sun and rain fall on the gardens
of the virtuous and scabs alike.

Why then do I build walls to keep out goats,
and pens to guard my fellow sheep?
The goats I starve; the sheep I pasture,
but I grow weary of this life.

Lord, give me grace to make my world
a place of hospitality
where wolves and rabbits, ducks and drongos
can find a feed, a ready ear.
